The aim of this article is to analyze the influence of modal triggers (semantic features of an antecedent and subordinating predicates, as well as negation operators) on the selection of mood in subordinate adjective clauses in contemporary Spanish. Moreover, the author compares the parameters of modal, syntactic, and semantic selection in Spanish and Polish. He also attempts to make some observations regarding modality differences in subordinate adjective clauses between these two languages. In Spanish, modal selection depends to a great extent on the properties of modal triggers, whereas in Polish, one of the most important factors is the semantic efficiency of hypothetical mood, which transmits certain modal content (no reality, degree of hypothesis, etc.).
